Tower crane manufacturer Potain has appointed Stirnimann as its distributor for Denmark, Greenland and the Faroe Islands.

Swiss Potain dealer Stirnimann is responsible for distribution, sales, service, spare parts and rental of all types of Potain tower crane in these areas. Stirnimann has a new 4,000 square metre yard and parts warehouse in Ølstykke, near Copenhagen.

Its rental fleet there will be boosted by an order for 17 new cranes, including an Igo T 99 self erector – the first unit in Scandinavia. Some used and refurbished models are also part of the order. Stirnimann rental cranes are already working on sites in Denmark’s capital, Copenhagen, and in Jutland. The remaining cranes in the order were to be delivered in the next three or four months.

“The new territories offer good opportunities for our business. Potain is a strong brand in these areas, and we can leverage our long experience from Switzerland and from building up a new market in Austria,” said John Cristian Asmussen, Stirnimann CEO in Denmark, Greenland, and the Faroe Islands.

Wybe Smit, Manitowoc regional director for tower cranes in the Netherlands and Scandinavia, said, “Stirnimann has a highly competent team and has already made significant investments for the region. We are pleased to deepen our already close co-operation with them.”
